The most common cockroaches in South Africa are American Cockroaches and German Cockroaches. They are easy to tell apart as American roaches are large and brown, while German roaches are smaller and black.
After inspection, roach treatments include a residual spray and gel applications.
Rats and mice are infamous for spreading disease and gnawing through almost anything, including electrical wires and vehicle engine pipes! Rodents will leave other tell-tale signs of their intrusion such as droppings, rub marks, and a bad odour.
Rodent treatments include rodent proofing and wax block poison inside bait stations. The poison we use has a very low secondary poisoning which means that if an owl, dog, or cat eats an poisoned rodent, they won’t be harmed.
Flies not only spread diseases like E. coli and Salmonella, but also present a constantly annoying distraction which can be damaging to your reputation, especially in the hospitality industry.
Fly treatment includes insect light traps at key entrant points or food areas, timer sprays and good hygiene practises.
A word with a devastating ring to anyone that owns a wooden structure, these pesky creatures are known to be the most damaging of all pests.
Preventive treatment can be pre or post-construction, and infestations are dealt with by drilling into the wood and applying termiticide.
Ants will travel great distances in search of food, leaving pheromone trails back to their nest. Employing incorrect methods of ant elimination will disturb their trail and they will send an alert to the queen ant, often resulting in a worse infestation.
Correctly identifying the ant species and finding out where their nests are is the first step to effective ant control.
Bed bugs are found in a variety of areas, including, of course, beds. This embarrassing pest can be picked up anywhere as they latch onto clothing, bags etc.
Controlling them includes a residual treatment in every area they are known to hide, as well as bed bug lures under each mattress.
The nasty, itchy mozzie bite usually occurs around dusk or dawn. Mosquitoes breed extremely quickly in standing water, and while Malaria is not a problem in South Africa, mosquitoes are still an unwanted guest.
Treatments include covering standing water and netting your windows, as well as propane gas machines that attract and kill mosquito infestations on a permanent basis.
